Vera

“Vera is a friendly, open and playfull dog. She likes to play with Husky's, Aktia's and other natural dogs; just one dog at the time to play until it is tired then she looks for a fresh playdog. She loves to lay down at the sofa with her mom and dad, she is always close to us, except when she is walking free but then she still knows where we are. She eats fresh mixed meat (KVV)”

Through Vera’s mitochondrial DNA we can trace her mother’s ancestry back to where dogs and people first became friends. This map helps you visualize the routes that her ancestors took to your home. Their story is described below the map.

H

Vera’s Haplogroup

This is a lineage that is found infrequently in dogs and may only be found in coyotes and dogs with recent coyote ancestors. It is very different from all known dog lineages indicating a long time between the most recent common ancestor of canids in this lineage and domestic dogs.

H6

Vera’s Haplotype

This haplotype has been spotted in coyotes and dogs with coyote ancestry. Not only is that pretty neat, but it also helps move science forward.

Some other Embark dogs with this haplotype:

North American coyotes have been known to mix with dogs in parts of the United States.

This 'Paternal Haplotype' tab is for deep ancestral lineage going back thousands of years.

For recent ancestry—"What breeds did my dog inherit from her mom and dad?"—please refer to the Breed, Family Tree, or Summary tab.

The Paternal Haplotype refers to a dog’s deep ancestral lineage stretching back thousands of years, before there were any distinct breeds of dog. We determine the Paternal Haplotype by looking at a dog’s Y-chromosome—but not all dogs have Y-chromosomes!

Why can’t we show Paternal Haplotype results for female dogs?

All dogs have two sex chromosomes. Female dogs have two X-chromosomes (XX) and male dogs have one X-chromosome and one Y-chromosome (XY). When having offspring, female (XX) dogs always pass an X-chromosome to their puppy. Male (XY) dogs can pass either an X or a Y-chromosome—if the puppy receives an X-chromosome from its father then it will be a female (XX) puppy and if it receives a Y-chromosome then it will be a male (XY) puppy. As you can see, Y-chromosomes are passed down from a male dog only to its male offspring.

Since Vera is a female (XX) dog, she has no Y-chromosome for us to analyze and determine a paternal haplotype.
